Default BT - why wasnt the live audio used for the bonus DVD?

Was quite dissapointed to see that the live performances on the bonus dvd had been over dubbed by the studio versions - surely it sounded good enough live to use...so how come ?

Would have been nice to actually hear it live; it looked like a good set

Cheers BT

BOS

Greetings BOS thats what we wanted to do also BUT our label said we are promoting ' 'these recordings' and a live recording would have increased the budget so much so that it would become impossible to do plus the fact that we would then have to shoot extra videos for the singles....thats it really..we just wanted to give you all a little extra..of course we did'nt think that retailers would up the cost of the dvd inclusive package...sorry if you are dissapointed ..BT

Cheers BT - I was sure it would have been out of your hands...as usual these days eh? Never mind, it is a cool little extra and the RRP hasnt been upped THAT much...I bet it sounded great though didnt it? Or did you have to just play along to it blasted thru a PA? Looking forward to Plymouth Pavilions anyway -will make up for it Im sure

Cheers - I was just curious: UB40 are such a well oiled machine especially when performing live they always sound on top form, I thought it would be something silly like the good old record company!!!

Think we may have been lucky it was dubbed over that state Robin was in on those vids [img]graemlins/laff.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/laff.gif[/img]
No wonder there was so many chairs around the place. I for one aint that bo5herd it was not a live recording I am hoping a gig on the tour will be recorded and brought out on DVD, now thats the live recording I want. [img]graemlins/smokin.gif[/img]

Default Re: BT - why wasnt the live audio used for the bonus DVD?

thats another very important point Skirge..now we have the opportunity to shoot a live gig,the label would never have gone with two live DVD's around 1 album as it would be competing with itself,we thought it would be a shame not to be able to shoot a real gig this year,NOT that im saying we are you understand,BUT its now a possibility (depending on how good WYFF does)...when we shot the album DVD we did play live over the top of the recorded tracks so that we matched the sync exactly (nothing worse than badly mimed video and it did sound really energetic and very live but to mix it ,master it (a neccessity) then compress the sound down to film soundtrack (-18 dolbyt ) then cut the film to match it would just have sent the budget over the top,we are not exactly shifting Millions of cd's right now and that is a big disadvantage when it comes to getting label money for projects,we had a fight to get a film included....im happy that our videos for the tracks were filmed where we recorded the record,i wanted you guys to see us in our 'natural habitat' so to speak.....BT
